 Appointments at Poplars Surgery must be booked in advance through your own GP practice (Reservoir Road Surgery) and are available with a range of clinicians including GP's, nurses and health care assistants. Please ask a receptionist for further information.


Following NHS guidelines all of our GP appointments are being converted to telephone consultations as of 17/03/2020

If the GP feels that they need to have a face to face consultation with you they will book an appointment to do so.

Prescriptions can be requested online or via email: reservoir.roadsurgery@nhs.net

If you have not yet nominated a pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to, you may want to consider doing this now. We will continue to provide updates to our patients via our website.

Data Sharing

Reservoir Road Surgery & its Doctors & Staff, working as part of the NHS, need and want to share data in various ways but we also want to protect your confidential and personal information.  Data about health can be used for various reasons, both internally within the practice, and externally with other services.


In the last few years there have been a number of National schemes in addition to an increasing number of independently and separately organised local schemes proposed & implemented where data will be automatically extracted from GP computer systems & sent elsewhere, unless the patient has opted out. Further data extractions for new purposes are due to occur soon. Some of these data extractions are to help the patient if they are seen elsewhere in the country. Some are purely for analysis of health care to improve the NHS services.


For many of these schemes, GP practices have a legal obligation to allow their data to be extracted. The only power we have as the data controllers of your Medical Record is to try to ensure that you are aware of where your medical records may be sent and why. Patients however can block their data from being extracted in most if not all cases. This document tries to explain the main purposes of data extraction & how you can selectively prohibit this if you wish.
